TIME TO PICK THIS YEAR’S STEEM SILVER ROUND!
Voting has been going strong on this year’s steem round. Voting round two is set to begin in just a couple of days. @raybrockman has suggested the top three designs will move on to a final face off.
See the original voting post HERE
Well right now my design (THE FIRST PHOENIX entered into the competition) is coming third. 😃
@welshstacker also entered a Phoenix (his is in the lead) and @edxserverus designed an amazing shield that is coming in at number 2.
Now both of these fellows have an advantage because they have used software to make their designs look like actual coins. It is of course easier to picture how cool a design will look with that sort of finishi touch.
HERE is the post I originally did for my design. The description below came from this post.</c/center>
Here have a phoenix rising from the ashes. Steem value was low, hard fork 20 got us down, but as we all keep steeming ahead, Steem will rise to bigger and better things.*
The words at the top of the round are from Seneca, a Roman philosopher/statesman. Ignis aurum probat, miseria fortes homines. In English this translates to:
“As gold is tempered by fire, so strong men are tempered by suffering". The meaning is that in order to become pure gold, the original gold-bearing ore must go through the tempering process of fire; the analogy being that for a man strong in spirit, adversity and suffering are the tempering agents necessary to refine his character and bring out his true potential.

In the case of Steem and Steemit, there have been challenges, but ultimately our communities have become stronger as a result. ☺️
When the next round of voting begins I will add a liink HERE.
Kapow! Voting is open. ☺️
How do I envision this as a coin?
And for those of you who need a refresher...

As @welAs @welshstacker suggested after sharing his phoenix, I do like the idea of the steem silver round being a series with each representing an element. (Water year one, earth year two, and maybe fire this year. 🔥😊) However, I also like the idea of different artists being represented eachar. 😁
How dumb that somehow there are multiple phoenixes in this year’s design competition! 🤣😂🤣😂
Vote for this one!
<centThe OG, ORIGINAL, FIRST IN THE COMPETITION Phoenix. 😄
